The Hunger Games Nail Polish Line: China Glaze Colours From The Capitol!

The Hunger Games Trilogy ranks up there with notorious addictions like chocolate, french fries, and shoes. If you’re not familiar with these books and are planning on reading them, believe me when I tell you to buy the complete set. They’re the can’t-put-down kind that will leave you pulling your hair out if you don’t have the next book handy! (Trust. Me.)


Naturally, these seriously addictive reads have inspired box-office movies (the first to premiere in March) and will undoubtedly spark a bevy of story-inspired beauty products. China Glaze is the first to kick things off with their 12-color collection. The inspiration? The book’s main setting: Panem. And so you can properly don these gorgeous nail shades with full-on Hunger Games attitude, here’s a super short synopsis: The nation’s Capitol, Panem, forces each of its twelve districts teenagers to compete in the Hunger Games.

There. Now you’re versed in The Hunger Games. To match Panem’s lavish, over-the-top culture, China Glaze has created shades that offer bold, rich colors with names to match like Electrify, Luxe And Lush, and Riveting. These stunning polishes will be available March 1st and will inevitably be a sensation with both Hunger fanatics and beauty enthusiasts. I wonder what color Katniss would pick? My money is on the Smoke And Ashes color…
